Kid's rambler
May 20, 2012

Great hat. I bought this for my 10 year old for our annual summer camping trip - in hot MO. It was great. Kept the sun off her without being too hot. Fit was perfect - very true to the size guide provided. Cost seems a little high for a kid's hat, but if they keep it on and it works - guess it is worth it!

Love it!
May 31, 2011

My friend recommended this hat to me -she has one for her son and herself. I bought one in April for my son and he loved it so much that I have bought another for my 2 year old daughter. We used to buy Coolibar hats, but the rims were too floppy and the kids couldn't see very well. I love that these have a chin strap for windy days... and they dry out quickly (even if wearing when running through a sprinkler). I can't say enough good things about this hat!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

great shade
June 19, 2010

I bought 2 of these: med. for my 2yo and lg. for my 4yo. They were both too large, so we made a quick switch and now the 4yo is wearing the medium and the 2yo will get a new small. The exchange seems straight forward and the initial product arrived in 5 working days. I am pleased with the transaction and the product.

All the protection you need
December 05, 2010

This hat works well for my toddler. We used it in the pool with no apparent effect from the chlorine. We purchased the S, and it fits well. Only issue is that it is a tiny bit deep, but adjustable drawstring on the crown helps out. After using this hat, I can't see how we would ever go back to baseball caps or bucket hats that are all fashion and no function. This hat even protects his neck. It seems to stay much cooler than any other hat we've had before. Buy this!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Great Kid's Sun Hat
November 11, 2010

I now have one of these hats for both of my littler guys. This is a great sun hat! It really keeps the sun off of them. Great Hat!

Rugged, durable hat!
September 12, 2008

The brim seems a little wide, and oddly long in the back, but my 7 year old loves it! We have gotten used to the large brim, which does offer great sun protection. Not to mention the fabric is perfect, cleans easily, lightweight, yet holds its shape, and the chin cord is comfortable!

Great sun protection hat!
December 10, 2010

The Outdoor Research Kid's Rambler Sombrero is the perfect sun protection hat for kids. It has really light weight fabric on the top portion so it's not too hot or heavy. The brim is just stiff enough to not flop downward and defeat the sun protection intended purpose. Plus, the brim is longer at the rear for the back of the neck area that is often left uncovered with other brands. The elastic locking cord around the headband and the adjustable chin strap keep the hat on even on windy beach days.

Increase sun protection to face by turning hat around
March 17, 2010

I bought the hat as an adult because I fit the head size measurements and frankly, it was cheaper. Well, the hat is great. The longer brim in the back can be worn in the front when you are walking toward the sun. The fabric is very lightweight and the strap works well for windy days. I'm a happy camper.

Great coverage, adjustable crown
July 03, 2008

This hat give great coverage to back of neck, the fabric in the crown is lightweight, so the hat can be easily packed for travel and the width of the crown is adjustable, so you get a custom fit.

Durable and great fit

I bought this hat for my 15 month old daughter as well as my 3 yr old son. This works well at the beach and in the yard. Very happy with my purchase.
